A gothic rococopunk fairytale nightmare. Sweet & innocent by day; goes bump in the night. Makes art, adores cats, collects dolls, slays zombies. Files her horns down daily.
jothelibrarian:

Pretty medieval manuscript of the day is the Black Hours, one of a very few manuscripts on vellum that is dyed black. This image is of folios 18v and 19r shows Whitsun (also known as Pentecost).
For a digital exhibition, take a look at the Pierpont Morgan library website.
